    World's Columbian Exposition: Legislative Pass Signed by Chauncey Depew. New York Central and Hudson River Railroad ticket for Hon. N.M. Curtis with an original signature in ink by senator and president of the Railway, Chauncey Depew, well-known financier and civic leader. The pass was to be used for all of 1893 as a legislator's pass on Depew's railroad! Light crease doesn't show on the surface. A pass that should be of much interest to those anxious to obtain Depew's autograph as president of the rail line, for railway buffs in general and of course, the fact that it was a pass to be used by members of the New York state legislature, in part for travel to the fair for dedication and pre-opening state business. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
